The former Governor of Ondo state Dr Olusegun Rahman Mimiko has urged his supporters to be committed to the political task ahead in the state, as
political parties are jostling for the 2024 gubernatorial election.
He stated this in a meeting held in his home town,Ondo city.
He said:” The meeting was very necessary in order for the man of the people to be above board in the presence of thousands of his supporters who are yet to come to terms with the ungodly speculation.
The supporters were blunt to be straightforward particularly to know the stand of the former Governor on the aspiration of his younger brother Dr Abbas Olubansile Mimiko who was rumoured to have been aspiring to become the next governor in the state.
The medical Doctor,turned politician disclosed that the desire of his younger brother who is an adult and also possessed all needed qualities to lead state and even the country at large may appear to be surplus to the Government House in Ondo state as at now.
It is also an undeniable fact that Dr Abbas Mimiko and for any office of his choice even if he desired to run for the office of the United States of America being a well trained American medical Psychiatrist and a specialist in the area of agronomy, the gentle man deserves to get it.
He stressed further that Dr Abbas carries all charisma to lead any nation of choice if people so desire to vote for him.
According to the former Governor, I have personally spoke with my brother why it is not the right time or the turn of the Central Senatorial District to produce the next Governor.
Even if it is the turn of the central it should not be the turn of Ondo West
And peradventure, the family of Mimiko should not be in the position to produce the next Governor in the spirit of fairness and equity
In addition, he narrated how he (Dr Olusegun Mimiko) had been receiving calls from far and near, associates and colleagues, on the matter which really prompted the outcry and public disapproval by the most adjudged best Governor ever produced in Ondo state.
“For the record purpose, Dr Abbas Olubansile Mimiko is an adult who knows what is the best for him, but as Dr Olusegun Rahman Mimiko I am not on the same page with this political permutation in the present political atmosphere”
Recall, Dr Olusegun Mimiko reiterated his commitment to the People’s Democratic Party and his intention to deploy all arsenals of political savvy to ensure the state is rescued from the present dungeon
He’s optimistic that the present reconciliation process from the national level to the local will yield the needed result.
